Our relationship with Boyle Street Community Services has grown over the years because we can see the direct, positive impact our donations have. When we see how our Holiday Meal Sponsorship delivers meal service to all in attendance at the Boyle Street Community Centre, we see our donation in action.
The more interaction we have with Boyle Street, the more we learn about the individual time, effort, and compassion the organization and its staff have in support of those in need.
We believe that small business can make a big impact in our communities. Our donations are enabled by our amazing customers and their choice of eLiasz and eLLa. It is this community support for small business that enables us to support Boyle Street Community Services, delivering real on-the-ground support to those most in need.
As we grow as a company, so will our support to Boyle Street Community Services.

From our friends at Boyle Street Community Services (Jan 19, 2023)
Thank you for sponsoring a meal at Boyle Street Community Services again this holiday, in doing so, you’ve continued a long-standing tradition of sharing the festive spirit
through food at Boyle Street.
Those we serve come together for a hot meal at the community Centre for many different reasons, one thing they have in common is that Boyle Street is a place of trust, dependability and connection for all. Feeling seen, respected and heard is how we come to connect vulnerable Edmontonians with the resources they require to meet their goals.
Our generous partners at Chandos have offered to match your donation, dollar-for-dollar, which means your meal sponsorship is doubling your impact and providing twice the nourishment to our community this winter.
The meal we served today on your behalf was a marvelous success. Thanks to your generosity, we served a warm meal of chicken strips and macaroni salad (with a pickle, my favourite!) and raspberry mousse for dessert to all of the clients at our Community Center.
Boyle Street Community Services serves over 12,000 individuals a year, offers over 40 programs, and has over 10 locations across the city of Edmonton. We serve adults, youth, children, pregnant women, families, and seniors. We know that poverty and homelessness can impact many types of people and stem from many causes. We work to build relationships with our clients, get to know them as people with full life stories, and treat them with dignity and respect. It is through these relationships that we help people meet their goals, small and large. Thank you for supporting our work through your kindness and generosity.
Our community wanted to share some photos of today’s meal service with you. Take a look at the attached photos and check out our Instagram account @boylestreetcommunityservices for more!
